When you were a kid, did you ever feel lonely? Like you didn’t quite fit in? That you wanted to be a part of something? To what lengths would you have gone to become popular?
Welcome to Becoming Eddie. It’s a comedy short about a Korean American boy in a 1980s suburb who wishes to become popular with his mostly white classmates – at least as popular as his foul-mouthed standup comedy hero. But when his wish comes true, he faces unexpected and outrageous consequences.
From the comedic minds of director Lilan Bowden (Andi Mack, Parks and Recreation), writer/producer Ed Lee (wrote for comedians Drew Carey, Chelsea Handler, Patton Oswalt, and more), Joyce Liu-Countryman (Days of Our Lives, Eat with Me) and producer Helen Hong (Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, Untitled Jessica Gao Project, Go Fact Yourself Podcast).
